Microsoft Edge and photo problem | Forum

Hi guys,

I don't really use Edge so never noticed it before but I cant seem to upload a photo using the Edge browser.

Photo upload is working fine in Chrome and Firefox so was wondering if this was a general issue with that browser or just an issue for my site.

Anyone else notice this?

We just tested photo upload feature in Edge, everything works fine on our demo.

This problem persists for my site and only happens when using tthe edge browser.

The error message says I am trying to upload an invalid file type.

Any ideas?

Good morning dave, it really doesn't matter what file it is. the problem only occurs if i try to upload using Edge. the same diles upload fine in Firefox and chrome.


They are all .jpg file types. its a strange one.

Please try to do upload image in jpg format via edge on our demo. Do you get the same results?

Hi Ross, I can't upload to the Demo site either so I guess the problem is with my copy of edge as apposed to my Oxwall installation.


@Dave I don't know how to reset Edge but I did try clearing my cache. It had no effect but to be honest I rarely use edge anyway, I only have it installed because it came with my PC so I'm really not too bothered.


You have alleviated the concern I had for my site so thank you guys for the help. 


it is very Much appreciated.


Shaun.
